My skin has always been silky smooth throughout my life, but ever since catching scabies... you can guess what.

Through the course of my 2 weeks of scabies (still have it, albeit less outbreaks), I've grown 3 moles with one of them on my face and numerous pimples with one being a major facial pimple. I usually don't fuss about pimples and whatnot but after scabies these things came out of nowhere at lightning speed... is this part and parcel of scabies? Moles and huge pimples? Can't help but feel my situation is unique considering how quickly these things popped up and my skin history.

Yikes! I don't know about pimples or moles, but you may want to see a dermatologist. Moles appearing can be a sign of something cancer related. I would get checked out just to be sure. My skin now is very rough and it peels and basically looks like I just have had the worst sunburn of my life. I also have a lot of 'darker' areas that I have been told will eventually lighten up.

Your skin is the largest and amplest organ of the body. If you do treatments somewhere on this organ, it can and perhaps will react to all these chemicals on other regions, even where no mites are.

That's the problem many sufferers aren't aware of. They treat each and every reaction of their skin as active sites and oftentimes after the mites are gone. A big mistake!
